Welcome Kara Koetter

We’re thrilled to have the talent, expertise and client network that Jupiter designer Kara Koetter brings to our team. A graduate of Florida State University, Kara’s Bachelor of Arts degree evolved into a multi-faceted design career. It all began with staging luxury real estate properties. Further fueled by her studies in interior design, Kara has received prestigious certifications including RESA (Real Estate Staging Association) and NAPO (National Association of Professional Organizers).

“I enjoy bringing home spaces to life,” Kara says. “I’m fortunate to share my passion with a network that began with personal relationships.

Over the past ten years, Kara has leveraged her talent and relationships with the area’s top builders to successfully manage all aspects of design projects, often returning to homes for remodels and additional design consulting with her loyal clients.

Kara will guide our Palm Beach Studio projects and continue to build the network she created more than a decade ago.

She and husband, Jonathan, have three children, Dalton, Lennon race and Waylon. In her free time Kara loves to be on the water, camping with friends or exploring new restaurants.

Home Builders Association Board-Ready

Our fearless leader and studio founder was recently inducted as a new Board Member of the Hilton Head Area Home Builders Association.

Kelly is among a small circle of accomplished female professionals who have been invited to join this impactful organization which supports Lowcountry builders and respective partners through education, community service and environmental stewardship.

“My term as a Board Member is two years, but hopefully my insightful contributions to the HBA will endure indefinitely,” Kelly shares.
